Crystal and I both finally got our Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017. I used to get mine before Crystal but somehow it is reverse now.

This months theme is Metropolis. “We run this town! Join the squad in our urban playground where anything can happen.”

I love the bag this month, this quite well could be my favorite bag ever. And I have a lot of them!! “This silver stunner was inspired by skyscrapers! Wear it uptown, downtown, or whatever you’ll be slaying this month”. Seriously, this bag is everything!

Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss in Method to the Madness

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

If someone won’t give us a trust fund, we’ll take this gloss instead. Easily buildable, one coat delivered a rosy sheen, two coats added a more noticeable flush to our lips. Either way, these neutrals are choice when the end goal is a no-makeup-makeup look.

This Brand’s the Bomb

When it comes to nailing trends, they’re always two steps ahead of the pack, so we can always trust that they’ll be the first to bring us the shades that are so-hot-right-now.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

My Thoughts and Value

This color will be universally flattering, and it is very sheer.  I haven’t tried it on my lips yet, but this will be a gloss I can really use, unless of course it is sticky!  This and the other color option for the bag are limited edition IPSY bag only colors, so that is cool!

Full size is $22, Sample is full size.

Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate Moss

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

As if we needed more reasons to heart Kate Moss, her partnership with Rimmel just seals the deal, especially when it comes to this delightful lip balm. Scrumptiously creamy, it leaves your pucker moisturized and looking fresh and healthy—and stays that way, all day. Still, it feels and smells so good (just the tiniest bit sweet), that you won’t be able to stop yourself from applying it every two minutes.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Bet you didn’t know that Rimmel London first started as a perfumery in 1834 (we certainly didn’t). It quickly morphed into a makeup company, creating revolutionary mascaras in the late 1800s…so much so that ‘Rimmel’ is the word for mascara in several different languages (we didn’t know that either). Flash forward to 2017, and they’re still killing the makeup game.

My Thoughts and Value

This is full size and $5.49.  I love this lip balm.  It is super soft and last for a long time.  I will purchase this for certain.

Pacifica BLUSHIOUS in Wildrose

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

There’s nothing like a swipe of blush to instantly revive your complexion. This one earns big points for the universally-flattering color, a shimmery rose that never leaves us with clown cheeks. FYI, it goes on a little lighter than it looks in the packaging.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Brand’s the Bomb

Here’s proof-positive that natural lines can have all the amazing formulas, colors, and products that any “non-natural” brand does. Pacifica’s goodies are not only innovative, but totally sustainable, and they’re all are 100% vegan, gluten- and cruelty-free.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

My Thoughts and Value

This color should be universally flattering.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Full size is $12 and oddly is smaller than this sample, making sample being $24.  That can’t be right.  The website says the full size is .05 ounces and this sample is .10 ounces??  How can that be?

Crystal got a blush too, apparently they want us blushing 🙂

ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Peach bellinis make us happy, but this namesake blush makes us even happier. The perfect coral color, it’s neither too red, too pink, nor too orange, and never fails to brighten up our complexion. Micro pigments blended into the pressed powder make for sheer, yet radiant, color.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Brand’s the Bomb

After owning a model management company (hence the name), founder Shelley Barrett decided she wanted to create products that were all about achievable glamour…for even the non-models among us. With brand fans like Elle Macpherson and Rosie Huntington-Whitely, we consider ourselves in good company.

My Thoughts and Value

Full size is $22, Sample is $9.65.  I don’t wear blush but I will gift this to someone who does.  The color is nice though!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Anti-Aging Concealer

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

We didn’t think it could get any better than this brand’s original Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. Spoiler alert—it did. This guy has the same full-coverage and completely waterproof formula, but with a little bit of radiance that makes everything better, making it a must-have for early mornings or late nights. And forget the name, it works just as well covering up complexion imperfections as it does hiding dark circles.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

ipsters who sample this product in their Glam Bag will receive the shade Fair, Neutral Medium, or Tan.  I got Fair.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Founder Jamie Kern Lima tried everything out there to cover up her rosacea, but nothing did the trick. So she took matters into her own hands and worked with plastic surgeons to develop IT Cosmetics. Today, the line is packed with high-tech solutions for every and any beauty issue.

This stuff is THICK and you have to squeeze hard to get it out of this TEE TINY TUBE.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

I can tell, a little will go a long way.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Here is the swatch a little more sheered out.

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

My Thoughts and Value

Honestly, I am not a huge concealer person.  I find I look cakey when I use a lot of products like this one.  But I love IT Cosmetics and will give this a go.  I like that the product was sealed.

Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 in Light

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Any time we can quickly and easily get our daily dose of SPF (friendly reminder: you need to wear it everyday), we’re all in. Sun protection, check. Hydration, check. A glowy finish, check. Add a hint of coverage and this BB checks all of our boxes.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Born out of a legendary LA photo studio, Smashbox nails it when it comes to creating products that can stand up to hot lights, wind machines, and countless wardrobe changes. But not only is the makeup ideal for a photo sesh, it also solves problems, consistently looks flawless, and feels good to wear everyday…whether or not you’re getting ready for a close-up.

My Thoughts and Value

Full size is $39, sample is $9.75

N’vive Natural Healing Cream

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

With glycerin and paraffin (but no steroids or cortisone!) you can feel free to load-up on this skin-saver daily. We’re especially into it for elephant elbows or cracked heels. Peppermint and eucalyptus oils make for a refreshing and invigorating scent.

This Brand’s the Bomb

With a focus on helping to restore damaged or stressed skin, N’vive products will whip your skin into the best shape possible, with an assist from lots of natural ingredients.

My Thoughts and Value

I have very sensitive, eczema-prone and dry skin, especially in the winter.  This is really nice.  The scent is refreshing and not too strong.

Full size is $12.95, sample is $2.51

Global Beauty Care Dead Sea Wash Off Mask

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Formulated with a unique blend of salts and minerals from the Dead Sea in Israel, this mud mask is like a relaxing vaycay for your skin. The deep cleansing formula draws out impurities, so dirt and dead skin cells simply float away.

This Brand’s the Bomb

What do you get when you give an expert team of researchers, chemists, and lab technicians the most advanced technology and quality ingredients available? A full line of innovative skin care products that you can believe in. Plus they come at a price you can totally afford. What’s not to love?

My Thoughts and Value

This is available at Bed Bath & Beyond.  Full size is $4.99, sample is $1.00.  I look forward to trying this mask!

Ciaté London GELOLOGY Top Coat

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Yah, gel manis are fab, but the removal process can be a total pain (does anyone have time for a soak off, really?). Paint on this top coat and you’ll get the same salon-worthy shine, long-lasting wear, and that plump and full look that you just can’t get from plain polish.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Once a nail technician, founder Charlotte Knight is now a global beauty brand owner, proving that following your passion is always the right move. #GirlBoss.

My Thoughts and Value

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

The bottle is so pretty!  They are offering 30% off with code IPSY30.  Full size is $17, this is full size.  I have been getting professional manicures lately, but am excited to try this as a top coat.  I have never used anything from this brand.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Fantasy 3-in-1 Eyeshadow

Ipsy Glam Bag January 2017 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Your makeup bag is about to lighten up. We love using this as an eyeshadow, blush, or a highlighter! Bonus: It’s highly pigmented, so you won’t have to pile it on for impact.

This Brand’s the Bomb

The ultimate in multitasking glam! Parisian glamazon Manna Kadar knows that babes like you are a) crazy busy and b) want to look fab, fast. So she created her line, focusing on double-duty products that seriously cut down on your primping time.

My Thoughts and Value

Use code IPSY30 to save 30% on their website.  Full size is $19, this is full size.  I have worn this color for a few days now and I adore it!!

Final Thoughts and Value

Kerry’s bag:

$70

I am most excited about the hand cream, nail polish, and lip gloss.

Crystal’s bag:

$44.89
